SPIRITUAL VS CARNAL CHRISTIANS

Spiritual minded Christians versus the carnal minded Christian, they both claim to be Christians, but only one is going to Heaven. The carnal minded Christian has one foot in the church, and the other out, and the foot that’s out is on a wet and slippery road, that will slide them straight to hell.

They fail to realize that,

  • (1) If you love the world, you are an enemy of God (James 4:4).
  • (2) You can’t love the world, the things of the world, and love God (1 John 2:15-16).
  • (3) You can’t serve two masters, it’s impossible to serve them both (Matthew 6:24).
  • (4) A double-minded person is unstable (James 1:8).
  • (5)True Christians are not conformed to this world, but are transformed by the renewing of their minds (Romans 12:2).
  • (6) God says, He knows your works, that you are not hot, or cold, just lukewarm, and He has to spew you out (Revelation 3: 15-16).

It’s time to choose who you are going to serve (Luke 16:13). Now the spiritually minded Christians are so Holy, they get on your nerves, but it’s not wrong they are only following what Gods word says, ‘He chose us before the foundation of the world to be Holy, and without blame before Him, in love’ (Ephesians 1:4, Ephesians 5:27), and we have to be pure, because Our Father is pure (1 John 3:3). But we can’t be too spiritual minded that we are not earthly good, because we still have to show love and compassion like Jesus did; you still have to love your neighbor as yourself. We got saved from the world, so that we can tell someone how good Jesus is once they accept, believe, and trust Him.

Jesus socialized, with people, but He knew who to hang out with, and where to go and not to go. Jesus went to Zacchaeus’ house not just to eat, but to introduce him to salvation, which led to him repenting (Luke 19:5-10). As a believer you can’t be too spiritually minded that you are not earthly good. “See, then, that you walk circumspectly, not as fools but as wise, redeeming the time because the days are evil, wherefore be ye not unwise, but understand what the will of the Lord is” (Ephesians 5:15-17). But the wisdom that is from above, is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be entreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy. If you are comfortable around people who are doing wrong or living a lie, then you better put on the belt of truth, and examine your walk with God, because something is not right. Now if you do not know God or His Son Jesus, whom, He sent to save your soul, go to the top of this blog, and click on to the salvation page, and follow the instructions. Trust me, it will be the best decision you ever make.

I give God the glory, praise, honor, and thanks for using me to deliver this message. I pray it was a blessing to you as it was to me, and that you will follow Him, and do His will until He returns in Jesus Name, amen.

WHO ARE YOU?

There is a song that says, “girl you can’t do, what the guys do, and still be a lady.” Now I am telling you that, you can’t be a Christian, and do the things non-christians do. If your desire is to serve God, you must untangle yourself from the affairs of the world. Who you follow or imitate, tells you if you are walking wisely, or as a fool (Ephesians 5:1-15). I once told someone that I don’t drink, nor smoke and I don’t hang around those that do. His reply was, what do you do for fun?

You see you can party your way to hell or praise your way into heaven, through repenting, and accepting Jesus (John 3:16 or John 6:40). People think that because you don’t do the things of the world, then you are not having fun. What they fail to realize is that, Christians are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His (God) own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness, into His marvelous light (1 Peter 2:9). As Christians, we must not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of our minds, that we may prove what is that good, acceptable, and perfect will of God (Romans 12:1-2). Therefore if anyone be in Christ, he is a new creation; old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new, and all things are of God (2 Corinthians 5:17). A double-minded person is unstable in all his ways (James 1:8). Now don’t get me wrong I am not saying not to talk to them, but we can’t do the same things, because we are serving too different God, and as Christians we can’t serve two masters (Matthew 6:24). If you don’t agree with me then it’s time to put on the belt of truth, and give yourself a self-examination. Then, make a choice to serve the God who creates you or the god of this world. We can’t be unequally yoked together with unbelievers; because what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? What communion hath light with darkness? This doesn’t mean we can’t talk to them, but we can’t go drinking or to a strippers club, etc. Wherefore, come out from among them and be separate (2 Corinthians 6:14-18).

Listen, how are you going to tell someone about the God of the universe, when you are doing the devils work with them. Let the beauty of Jesus be seen in you, all His wonderful compassion and purity.

If you don’t have Jesus Christ as your Lord, and Savior, go to the top of this blog, click on to the salvation page, and follow the instructions.

I give God, the glory, praise, honor, and thanks, for using me to spread His message, I pray it blessed you as it did me. I also pray it will make you examine yourself as His child, and be obedient to His word, and His will, in Jesus Name, amen.
